lyrics

THE COLD LIGHT OF DAY

The cold light of day is in your eyes
Reflecting pale grey winter skies
You keep to your self imposed exile
You keep them guessing with your smile
But there's no need 'cos it's impossible to read

Let me get up to speed
And I'll jump the wall around your heart
I'll be all that you need
If I can't be all that you want

The cold light of day is hard to miss
When it burns through the skin like this
It fills up your lungs with something sweet
Like every miserable defeat
Rolled into one and left to dry out in the sun

Let me get up to speed
And I'll jump the wall around your heart
I'll be all that you need
If I can't be all that you want

Does it get lonely in your own universe?
'Cos you could do better for sure
And you could do worse

The cold light of day is a con artist
Who paints it bleaker than it is
With nothing to lose there's nothing to fear
And nothing if not time to spare
All I can do is just leave it up to you

Let me get up to speed
And I'll jump the wall around your heart
I'll be all that you need
If I can't be all that you want
